I wanted to know if this place could live up to the ratings. It DID. I know...it's in a strip mall. Let that go. These guys are on it... Super friendly, quick service and stellar food. We had the eggplant parm app and the marguerita pizza. Both were excellent! Bravo!!

The service was exceptional! The pizza tasted like genuine sicilian pizza, as well as all the dishes my group ordered. The best Italian I've had since being in Italy no doubt. The pink lady fettucini is to die for! My drink never dipped below the halfway mark. Prices are moderate but completely worth it!

We enjoyed our dinner here. The food and service were both excellent. We received a complimentary dessert for our 20th anniversary. It was delicious as well.

Wow, here we are just finishing our early dinner. To start, the drinks are just what you order (I had a Cosmo, husband had a grey goose martini). We started with the calamari - cooked to perfection with an authentic marinara. I am a authentic New Yorker and this restaurant takes me back to Brooklyn and little Italy! We just finished their fresh eggplant and tender veal Marsala. Simply put....we can't wait to come back !!!
